TERMITE INSPECTIONS KANSAS CITY

Termites and other wood-damaging bugs such as carpenter ants and carpenter bees can cause major damage to a home. Termites swarm in the late spring through the fall and will find any tiny opening in the home to enter and start building their colony. They only need a space 1/32 inches wide to enter, so even the smallest crack can be an issue.

THERE ARE FOUR MAIN WAYS TERMITES ENTER A BUILDING:

  • Inside the holes of hollow block walls
  • Crawl up the side of foundations walls and supports
  • Through openings in expansion joints
  • Through cracks in the foundation around plumbing

By identifying the weak and vulnerable areas of your home, you might be able to make repairs, fill holes and prevent termites from entering your home in the first place.

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED THAT YOU MAY STILL HAVE AN INFESTATION, HERE ARE SIGNS OUR INSPECTORS WILL LOOK FOR WHEN CONDUCTING A TERMITE INSPECTION:

Droppings

May resemble sawdust or coffee grounds and can be found in mounds or trails.

Swarms

Swarms of termites or carpenter bees can be found near windows, doors, piles of wood and mulch, and tree stumps. After a swarm, you may see discarded wings.

Damaged Wood

Wood damaged by termites will often have a hollow sound and a honeycomb look to it inside. The material will probably crumble when you bump it or put pressure on it.

Earth Tubes

Worker termites create dirt-crusted tubes on walls, foundations, floors, and support joists. They use these tubes to travel about and often give a wall a rippled appearance.

Live Termites

Termites are not easily spotted when they are not swarming as they tend to stay inside their colonies and tunnels but by looking inside walls and under materials we can find these destructive bugs. Reproductive kings and queens have wings and are black or brown while worker termites are white.

If you suspect your home has a potential termite problem, or you just want to ensure that a new purchase is termite-free, Crown Home Inspections will conduct a thorough termite inspection, checking for potential infestations, damage, and the areas of the home that need maintenance to prevent a future problem. You can save thousands of dollars in potential future remediation and repairs by having a termite inspection conducted today.

    I called to schedule an inspection and the person that answered was courteous and very helpful. She emailed a quote for the cost and they were able to get us scheduled the next day. John met us at the property and asked if we had any … More specific concerns. After an extensive inspection he went over all his findings which included pictures, and gave us a folder with a lot of useful information. We received the inspection report by email that same day and I highly recommend John and his company Crown Home Inspections.

    I would recommend Crown Home Inspections to anyone looking for a thorough home inspection. We were assigned two gentlemen both by the name of Travis (one who did our thorough home inspection and the other who completed our sewer scope). … More Both were prompt, professional and courteous and both took the time to explain their findings and answer all questions to ensure we understood. We were very pleased with both of them. Thank you Crown Home Inspections!

    I have used Crown Home Inspections for nearly 15 years. Their inspectors are always on time and pleasant no matter how their day has gone. They set up your radon testing equipment, set up for termite inspections and go over with your client … More or the buyer any problem areas. This is one company who is so consistent with their service I am eager to recommend to anyone who needs their home inspected!!
